Adventurer Essentials: The Common Tongue


"I do not believe that writers are sacred. I believe that words are. They deserve respect. Put the right ones in the right order, and you can nudge the world a little, or make a poem that your children will speak for you when you are dead."
- Petrarch.

To convert the unbeliever, you must speak his language. To command an army, your soldiers must understand the bellowed orders of their generals. To trade, to demand surrender or to plead for mercy, to complement or to insult, to seduce, to proselytize, to scheme, to plan....

a common language must first be found.

From almost the beginning of the hobby, fantasy gamers have used such a common language to allow their characters to communicate with one another, and with their friends and enemies. The omnipresent Common is a mostly unquestioned part and parcel of fantasy gaming. If gamers think about what Common is at all, other than a quickly filled in word on a character record, they tend to imagine Common as some kind of trade language, a pidgin blending words and grammar rules from dozens of other languages.

The Common Tongue is not a hodge-podge trade language.

Learn the origins of the Common Tongue as well as varient rules for employing it. Also included in this Pathfinder compatible PDF are a new Diety and his factions, the new Language Clerical Domain, four new language-realted feats and six new spells.  Do something un-common with The Common Tongue!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
